Re: Glas Maol and Cairn of Claise (from Glen Isla)

Sounds like a good plan! ascend via Coire loch Kander doable? Yes: about 1km of fairly rough going from Jock's Road to Loch Kander, then quite steep but grassy and straightforward slopes NW of the loch. You can include Creag nan Gabhar to make a nice circuit. I didn't tread the Coire Kander route, ...

Re: Glas Maol and Cairn of Claise (from Glen Isla)

but would leave me with a pesky Creag Leacach on its own for another day! I wouldn't get too hung up about bagging these hills in the most efficient way: there are quite a few good routes in that area that are better than the standard bagging ones. Since these hills are easily accessible from Edinb...

Re: Glas Maol and Cairn of Claise (from Glen Isla)

I've had my eye on this area for a while - yet to do any of the Glenshee hills but since I grew up effectively on the banks of the Isla I've always wanted to do a circular starting from Auchaven to follow it to its source in the Caenlochan glen. I'd originally thought of doing the WH route up Monega...

Re: another 'what hills can you see from this hill' thread

I haven't done too many munros yet but of those I've done, little Stuchd an Lochain opened up views to almost every hill in the central highlands, from Glencoe, to Lochaber, Alder to the Cairngorms, the Mounth etc etc. Stunning on a good day!

Re: Close Calls on the Hills

Lesson: don't relax after the tricky bit - keep paying attention where you put your feet. How true is that? I haven't had any serious incidents but then I haven't done too many hills. My one and only winter ascent (of Ben Challum back in Easter) was absolutely fine at the top in the ice, snow and f...

Re: Revelations on "The Creche of Glencoe"

Some superb views, shown at their best - this has the "little" shepherd and its neighbours fighting higher on my list of must-do hills. It's no wonder that the ever-photogenic Maggie looks so in her element, especially that shot on Stob Coire Raineach. Great pics, good reading - and super...

Revelations on "The Creche of Glencoe"

"Revelations” is possibly an over-ambitious title for this post given how popular these hills are, and how many of you will have already savoured their delights however the lasting impression I have from this day is a feeling of massively exceeded expectations – something that’s beginning to be...

Hills made me smoke again, can't resist a summit ciggy., though I do at least take the butts away with me which leads to a disgusting smelling pocket! :sick:

Stuchd on an incredible landscape

Last year, I’d enjoyed a couple of my most memorable days hillwalking atop Mayar and Mount Keen with my dad, who’d been intrigued by my new found love of Scotland’s high places. We hadn’t yet got out in 2013 owing to the late winter but now that the sun was finally emerging from hibernation, a weeke...
